So it is true. DY and the USTA just can't seem to get on the same page. His mother is going to be on "tour" with him in some sort of coaching capacity until she is ready not to be. This should be a non-issue at this point really.

Looks like Young's next tournament will be the SAP Open. Unless he plays Davis Cup, not sure how likely that will be. Although Roddick and Bob Bryan will be out. I hope he makes the team this tie.

Let's see...They have are 3-3 in H2H's. They split last summer. DY is off to a slow start this year. Russell is the ultimate battler. But DY should win. I say DY has a 60% chance of winning.

Not the best 1st round matchup for Donald. Lot of Americans in that quarter of the draw.

Tough matchup, especially in the form he has been in lately. Lets see what happens.

Default Re: Donald Young

Like others, I've been following DY since his teenage years. He's certainly taken us on a maddening journey. However, his meteoric results last summer and fall were quite enjoyable. His yearend ranking of #39 was stunning. Had he finally turned the corner?

So far in 2012, he's gone backward. (As Bud Collins once described DY, he's played like doo doo.) He is 1-3, with losses to Falla (#80 at the time), Lacko (#119), and Russell (#104). His only win was against Gojowczyk (#248). So he is not playing like someone ranked #40. He is playing like someone ranked #140, maybe even #240.

I like to assess his chances of winning each match. Right now, it is hard to be optimistic for this next match. I think he has only a 20% of beating Dimitrov. On the plus side, he is (surprisingly) 2-0 H2H against Dimitrov. And Dimitrov hasn't set the world on fire lately either.

Dimitrov is 1-0 against him, 1-1 if you include a Challenger Young won against him in Honolulu. He needs to stay with 1 racquet and not be changing after every tournament. Despite his terrible start he can still rise up the rankings if he can get it together.

You're right, Coasterman, about the H2H. All the more reason I think DY has only a 20% chance of beating Dimitrov.

Young won 7-6(4), 4-6, 7-6(6)! According to a Brad Gilbert tweet Donald was using his old racquet. Assuming Brad means the Prince Exo3 Tour. Hope he sticks with it this time, but who knows with him. Big win as he needed the points and now he will play Isner or Muller. Either matchup would be tough especially John but it'll be a match he can get some experience off of.

Default Re: Donald Young

Donald looked awful in the first set against Russell - inconsistent, mis-hits off the racket frame, unforced errors, tentative. He looked more like the Donald who was ranked in the 200's, not in the 40's. He knuckled down in the second set but let Russell back in the set, and lost the big points. Too many shallow, loopy forehands on big points. Hopefully grinding out a close win over Dimitrov turns the tide again.

Good to see DY win against Dimitrov, although most accounts have it being a sloppy match where no one seized control. Still a win is a win.

It's hard to see DY being competitive against Isner. Big John is playing super, and besides DY has always had trouble against big, hard-hitting players (Isner, Kevin Anderson, etc.) I think DY has at most a 10% chance of winning. I hope he's working on a good game plan to maximize his chances.
